ReWalk power legs
Here’s a promising way to help those with complete paraplegia to get moving again with battery-powered leg braces. Check out the video at http://youtu.be/imfe4v3Tthc.
Dr. Jaynie Yang is planning to study the effectiveness of the ReWalk compared to treadmill training for rehabilitation. Candidates should have good arm strength and hand grip, be between 5’2″ and 6’4″ tall, and weigh less than 220 lb. Training will be 1 hour per day for 3 to 5 days per week, with 3 months on the ReWalk and 3 months on the body-weight-supported treadmill. The study will start in late 2013 or early 2014. Contact Dr. Yang at 780-492-2894 or firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
